Under Armour's Bill Hampton Dies Unexpectedly After ESPY Awards
Published July 14, 2011
Under Armour Founder Kevin Plank called Hampton "one of the most beloved people on our brand" in an internal e-mail this morning. 16W Marketing Partner Frank Vuono hired Hampton at NFL Properties in the '90s. "I can’t think of many people across the league that didn’t know him," Vuono recalled. "He was a larger-than-life guy who always made you smile and you always smiled when you thought of him. I’m sad, but that is what I’m doing now – smiling."
Under Armour Dir of Men’s Brand Marketing Brad Charron on Twitter this afternoon wrote, “Billy Hampton was the best of all of us. It's a huge loss for our company! We r all thinking about Hamp's family now.”
